Interior Space Analysis In Terms of Positiveness

Authors(2) :-Rajeev Parashar, Sudheer Singh Sikarwar

One of the most straightforward yet minimum connected ideas in design is that of positive space versus negative space. The negative space is defined as a space that forms in the interior of the mind. It is a space that is hard to define in a physical manner. With the help of a case study, this research paper highlights various ways which can create negative space in residential space. The paper also describes various solutions to overcome the highlighted problem of negative space. Interior design is making the best possible use of the available use. Sometimes even small things which are ignored while designing create a huge level of discomfort for the user of that space so such spaces results in creating negative space. By keeping some aspects in mind like colour psychology, shape of design which are the important elements for comfort of the user of the space, one can create a design which is free of negative space.
